Nisaab for zakaat for husband and wife

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. I have question regarding zakat. I am a married and a house wife. My husband is working in another city. My husband gives me money monthly for home purchases and some pocket money. We don’t have our own house, we just bought a piece of land 5 months ago and want to build a house. My husband has 7000 dollars and I have more than 100 grams of gold. So is zakat and qurbani waajib on me and on my husband or do we first have to build our house?

2. If qurbani and zakat is waajib on us, do we have to pay zakat separately and do qurbani separately?



1. Both are compulsory.

2. Yes.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
